A Valentine's Day Slipper

I think I'm addicted to making slippers or shoes with Brenda Walton's Ballroom Slipper die.  They are so easy and fast to make, one of those stress relieving projects.  This time, I made a hanging Valentine's ornament.


The papers were from the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found collection, Heirloom.  Love the vintage look of this collection.


For this slipper, I decided not to attach the heel, so it would hang flat.  I glued in a bit of ribbon before attaching the back of the slipper.  I layered different sizes of hearts and trimmed the edge with crepe paper.  The arrow was from the coordinating die-cut embellishments.  



I decided to fill my slipper, so I cut off a piece of foam from one of the foam pieces that I save from Sizzix Embossing folder packaging.  These are a nice dense piece of foam and are easy to cut up, great for altered projects when you need more dimension.  I snipped a piece of wooden skewer and stuck it in an altered Maya Road mini spool, and stuck that in the foam.  I also attached different embellishments into a Tim Holtz pin and stuck that into the foam also.  I glued it into the toe of my shoe and covered the bottom with shredded book paper.



After taking these photos, I realized that my arrow kept bending, so I cut out thin chipboard and glued it to the back to make it a bit sturdier.

That's it for my newest shoe, I'm sure I will have more in the future!

Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you everyone for the wonderful comments yesterday! They are much appreciated!
